I always go to Abe's Bird Blog because of the great bird captures he has. Tom at Wiggers World also has a lot of great bird captures. I have been enjoying my new camera but it doesn't do what these great sights do. So, with no apologies, here are the photo opportunities I have had in the last few weeks.
The Mallard Ducks pairing off for mating on a frozen flooded field.
The Canadian Geese feeding in a field.
A Robin outside my window at work in a flooded yard.
A pair of Mourning Doves in a tree near my house that I caught at dusk. I caught the Mourning Doves in the evening. They come to my garden in the summer to dust themselves.As I was chasing the Doves around the neighborhood in a small tree near the Doves I thought I saw a female Cardinal. After studying the photo I decided that with the red breast it might be a Cedar Waxwing. I hope to see it again
The American Crow in the yard at work. A long shot for my camera.
Here is a better look at the American Crow.
Three crows in the yard with a story. I wish I had my camera ready sooner but I'll just tell what I saw. There were four crows in the yard that had a Groundhog surrounded. When the Groundhog heard me it took off very quickly with the Crows giving him the business. I didn't turn the camera on soon enough.
This is a Grackle that I saw in my yard near my boat. My boat is still turned over on the trailer. One more week and I should be turning it over and loading it up for the lake.
I hope you enjoyed my recent captures and expect to see several more birds on my camera.
